Description

This course is designed to teach you the fundamental practical skills to navigate and work in a z/OS environment.



This includes the use of ISPF/PDF dialogs, TSO/E commands, JCL, UNIX System Services shell, and BookManager.

Objectives


  • Review the main concepts of z/OS

  • Log on to TSO and start ISPF/PDF

  • Navigate through ISPF/PDF dialogs and use the basic ISPF/PDF functions and the ISPF Editor

  • Use ISPF/PDF to allocate data sets and edit data sets (including hierarchical file system (HFS) files) using the ISPF Editor primary and line commands

  • Use ISPF to create and manipulate (copy, rename, delete, list, sort, and merge) data sets

  • Identify security considerations for Multiple Virtual Storage (MVS) data sets and HFS files

  • Describe and use TSO/E commands

  • Perform simple modifications to existing ISPF/PDF panels

  • Invoke a REXX exec and TSO CLIST

  • Tailor existing JCL and submit batch jobs

  • Review job status and job output using SDSF

  • Invoke UNIX processes

  • Manipulate HFS directories and file systems using the UNIX System

  • Services ISHELL
